A Room to Love: Sleek bunk beds make small space

We don’t normally associate bunk beds with being sleek and stylish, probably because of who normally sleeps in the beds. This room ignores that thinking.

“This is a bunk bedroom that we recently designed for a client in their weekend ski home,” writes Jennifer Palumbo of Jennifer Palumbo Interior Design in Newton. “The family uses this home year round, from ski season through the summer months. We wanted the design aesthetic to be conducive for any time of year.”

She says with the family members getting tall, it was important to choose extra-long twin mattresses to avoid toes hanging off the end.

“Bunk bedrooms are a popular element of weekend and summer homes, which tend to draw larger groups of family and friends,” Palumbo says.
